Davis Square, Home of the Tree-Sweater, Gets Statue-Masks

If you haven’t seen it yet, this picture of one of the statues in Davis Square seems to me like a very good indication of the zeitgeist: On the one hand, we’re all worried. On the other hand, we know our worry is absurd. So, we put silly ineffective masks on statues.

As long as we feel like we’re doing something, it doesn’t matter whether the thing we do is actually effective or even relevant.
